Review by lewispike
This is clearly a book building up to the end of the series (which is due in the next book). There's some interesting play on the number of ways things can become phantom, and that's fun in places, but gets a little overdone.There are also a couple of long discourses on the evils of the Imperial Order's philosophy. I have to wonder how many people will think "Islamic terrorists", and how many will also think "Catholic church" - interesting seeing them taken out of context and just similar they are.There's the usual mix of action, philosophy and the like. If you liked the earlier books, this one does a lot of looking back - make sure you're up to date with stuff right back to book 1!
